The Cat Above and the Mouse Below
My favorite Tom and Jerry from the Chuck jones era. To start, the character designs are pretty good. I prefer Tom's old look from the H-B years, though. I mean he just looks too cuddly in these cartoons to be Tom. Then again, the Boris Karloff-eyebrows are pretty cool.
However, I adore Jerry's new look. He's just so cuddly, I wanna hug him! In fact, one of the characters I created has his look based on this version of Jerry. I'll get to posting his pictures once I get a scanner.
The music's great in this one, and Jerry's aria at the end always makes me smile.
